I’ve tried to capture the beautiful gossamer wings of butterflies and dragonflies in illustrations before and I find it impossible to truly replicate them. Even in photography one can’t capture the flash of colors as they flutter about. Well, I was startled to see that the designer of these coins got it. The use of the Prism applique technique works perfectly to recreate that flitting, glinting impression we associate with these wonderful creatures in flight. I never would have expected it in a coin. If you’re a collector of world coins with a place in your collection for creatures of such gentle beauty then this proof-like world coin with a Prism applique butterfly is a must!
